Junk Debt Collector
Address
City, State Zip

Informed recipient
address
City, State Zip


MM/DD/YYYY

Certified Return Receipt Mail No.: _____________


Re: Your Inquiry dated ____: your file # _____


Mr. Scumbag :

I received a letter from your office on (DATE) over an alleged debt from (Year)with (Alleged Creditor/Utility Company). I have no knowlege about a past due amount owed to (Alleged Creditor/Utility Company).

Under (ENTER YOUR STATE) State Code the subject account has a (#)year limit for filing any legal action or collection.

The starting date of this statute of limitations being either, the date of the last mutual activity, or the date of first default with the ORIGINAL CREDITOR of the subject account. The ORIGINAL CREDITOR being VERIZON, which you stated in your dunning letter to me dated mm/dd/yyyy.

This notification is formal notice to you that any filing of such action by you, or your representatives or assigns, is therefore time-barred.

What you are attempting to do is clear, and continued collection activities, including reporting, verification or insertion of accounts, beyond their legal collection date, to any consumer credit reporting agency, may be considered extortion and/or fraud and subject to criminal as well as civil prosecution.

Please note that proof of your receipt of this notice may be used by me or my legal representative in further action.

Since this alleged debt is clearly past the legal time frame for continued collection activity, you will cease any further contact with me.

You are not to sell, transfer, assign, or share any information about me or this alleged debt with anyone else.


My name here

******** I have tons of letters. This is a FOAD letter. I raised my score from around 440 to 690 in a couple months. I totally cleaned my report by playing hardball.

This is soo helpful. I hope people get across this. This will benefit many because there are people who need the samples to write letters.

Hi George Mawhinney
The best way to check whether your debt has been sold off to the collection agency or not is to send a debt validation letter to them. The CA must validate your debt within 30 days of receiving your letter else you need not pay them. However, if they can validate the debt, you should come to a repayment agreement to pay back the debt. Validating the debt means that the CA must prove that the debt has been sold to him. You can find sample debt validation letters in this forum itself. You can visit this link to get a DV letter. http://www.creditmagic.org/repair/sampleletter-debtvalidation.html

mary, how about the ones who do not validate with in the 30 days or not at all and then still take you to court? Can you show the judge that you asked them to validate and they did not? What would happen from there/

Hi Fireyone
If the collection agency do not validate the debt within 30 days from the date of receipt of your letter, then it means that the CA does not have the proper authorization to collect your debt and so he could not validate it. Hence you are not liable for the debt to that collection agency. Even if they sue you to the court to bring judgment against you, the judgment will be in your favor only if you have written document in support of your claim that you have asked for debt validation. So you should always send debt validation letter by certified mail.

That is good to know. With the ways debt collecotrs trample over peoples rights I wondered if there was a way they could get a way with not validating. I see now why it is important to ask for debt validation by certified ,mail. Thanks.

You got that right, they tramp and tramp and some don't stop until you are down right sick of them.

I am just saying I think it is fair that if they don't validate or even refuse to and then still take you to court then they can n ot collect. Is it too late to validate the debt once they send you the summons? I knw this is part of your defense right? You would think you would still have the right to debt validation at any point even in court. Shouldn't that be the first thing the judge should look at before continuing with the haering.
Kind of like a tilte to the car. If I am suing you for a 2008 mustang and I don't have the tilte to it then I can't get it from you. So if they don't own the debt then they can not collect. I would think even when they go to file a summons they should have proof they own the debt before bothering someone.

Subject: OLD DEBT - New Letter from a New CA
 
Posted on Mon May 02, 2011 3:41 am  

Hi, can we send a combination Verify & Time-Barred SOL letter?

Or is it more wise to send them separately?

Frankly, I'd like to send a Cease/Desist, Verify, & SOL all-in-one letter but that may not be smart.

This letter came out of the blue & the debt is sooo old I cant even remember the details. I "think" it may be from 1998 or even earlier, which is why I'm having trouble remembering.

The CA is "Stoneleigh Recovery Asdociates" & they say prior debt owner was Oliphant Financial; & that the ORIGINAL debt was with FNANB. I can vaguely/barely remember any FNANB.

Yet I cannot even find a website for a bank named FNANB to try to jog my memory. What I found was that FNANB was for Circuit City credit cards, but I don't remember ever having a Circuit City credit card (that is not somewhere I ever shopped).

Other google searches say FNANB later turned into Fleet -- whatever that is I have no idea -- & then later on, Fleet turned into Providian/Emerge.

I've never heard of Emerge, though I did have a Providian card that was bought out by WaMu, & then WaMu was bought out by Chase; & I still have that card in good standing always, so that can't be the same card as this supposed old FNANB debt.

The CA's letter says if I want validation of debt I would have to reply within 30 days or they will consider the debt valid. Since I only pick up mail every few weeks (who does paper mail anymore? I get all my bills online), their 30-day limit is up too soon for me to reply within their deadline.

I hear that 30-day thing does not apply in all states, but I don't know if it applies in Fla or not.

Anyhow, that CA is dreaming if they think I'm going to mess with them re a debt that is so old I can't even remember any facts or details.

Subject: Real old debt...........
 
Posted on Sun Jun 05, 2011 5:41 pm  

I got the same letter as "Just got a dunning" from same people she received her letter from. Going to send a very, very simple time barred letter and start off by disputing the debt. That way, if they try anything else........!!!! Some experts say to ignore, others say to send time barred letters, very simple ones. Not to acknowledge the debt, but dispute it! The letter was sent to me under my old name as I have been remarried for twenty years. If I had had my glasses on, I wouldn't have opened the thing and had the Post Office send it back, returned mail.......no one lives here by that name!!!
